Could anyone please tell me what would be the best and easiest method for creating round cornered tables.

You can either use images to create a rounded corner effect, or you can wait for the CSS3 specifications - which feature the border-radius property - to reach the recommendation status, and of course for user agents to actually comply to it; say, a year or two, three...
Go for images.
You mean, the regular method of using gifs or jpegs in the corner cell?

Assuming you're going to use a table for layout purposes, the following articles on A List Apart (http://www.alistapart.com/) may give you some extra info on the subject:

I forget the address...but do a search for "finetable" in which he's done the coding for you...without images.
Thanks Ronald once again, I have copied the article, will go through and get back.
Thanks Zoobie for the tip the php script, finetable (http://www.hotscripts.com/Detailed/14897.html) is available at hotscripts.com, have downloaded, will give it a try

I'm not very happy about that finetable thingy, it claims to give rounded border with no images, yet it uses images....

Does it? Ha ha! I never checked it...I just figured it was telling the truth because the corners were a bit jagged...
